Another place to follow the steps to get this done is on the Windows 10 Forums in their tutorial section.

I did this last week, and it worked without any major issues.

Be aware that it can seem to stop, or stall, at around 27%, but just check your hard drive activity light, and if it is flickering then all is good, just have patience and wait.

I tried that free Windows 10 and ended up having to format both my desktops because I kept getting updates that would take an hour and then they wouldn't work and so had to wait for the updates to be removed and on one of my desktops I had to replace the hard drive.

Windows 10 is horrible.
If when Win 7 becomes useless, I will prolly migrate to a Linux based system.
If Apple products were not so expensive I would consider getting a Mac.

If anyone is having issues with these Win 10 upgrades or other Windohs' privacy problems, there is a free programme named ShutUp10, which lets you take back control from of u$'s freaky stuff.

See < https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10 (https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10)  > It's a pretty powerful tool, so be careful when you set it up.

I've been using this since I bought my last laptop, which came with Windohs 10 preinstalled, 3 years ago.

I run Linux Mint 19.2 along side XP SP3, in a dual boot configuration, on my other 2 LTs.

Hehehe. As a backup, I have Mint 19.2 as well. The MATE version.
